Finchley N Gauge Scenic Model Railway Layout Part 13 Test Photographs

N gauge class 14 D9555 and short train reflected in Finchley pond
The piece of glass used to create the pond for Finchley is now fixed in place.  Like the puddles detailed in my blog post dated 26 March 2012, the glass was painted underneath before assembly.  I took a couple more test photographs to study the reflections captured in the ‘water’.  I was pleased that a lot of the subject matter was present in the reflections now that the scenery has overlapped the edge of the pond covering a small amount of reflective surface.

I was pleased to get class 14 D9555 and all of its short freight train in this shot.  I will have to be careful around the edges of the pond when adding vegetation as there may be a risk of losing some of the subject matter if rushes etc. are too high and too far forward.  I will probably add model plants to a test area, take some more photographs of the model railway layout and study this aspect before proceeding.
